5 Playful Rooms that Make you Want to be a Kid Again! (1st Project of the Year Party Features)

Pin It

This set of features simply makes me want to be a kid again. Super fun, super creative playrooms are kicking off 2012. Okay, the first one is technically not a playroom...it's a mudroom with kid-friendly colors and features...a definite must see! The second space is an art house...yes, an actual house just for the kids' art endeavors!! The third and fourth spaces transformed unused spaces under the stairs for fire station and royalty themed playrooms, respectively. The last playroom is a major room update with a decidedly grown-up feel and tons of toy storage. These kids are going to have a fun year!
